you drive on roads. I did professionally so I know more to say that I was just wanting to create some awareness about responsible driving and respecting other vehicles.
bikers also are at fault and I would'nt encourage that unruly driving there too..

2 times more?.. 3 times more?.. 10 times more?.. I think 10 times is also an understatement.

Most bikers are the culprits for most car+bike related accidents.

I won't stand for bikers blaming car drivers for everything bad that happens to them. It's their fault for driving a bike. Period.

They don't value their life, but expect us to?.. Please.

Edit: @KiD0M4N, a splash can also be a mistake. It's not like we do it purposely.

Not all car drivers are saints. But the ratio of rash drivers to normal drivers in cars, is nothing compared to the amount of rash bike drivers.

Ooh and talking about respecting others.

Example of what happened just now.

I parked on the side of the road. In about ten minutes, a biker came and parked right in front of me (no more than an inch to move) and in another 5 minutes, another parked behind me.

I wasn't able to get out of the parking spot as there were no more than 2-3 inches total in front and behind. (I must add, there was ample place to park without impeding me.)

This isn't the first time, FYI. So yes, bikers can go f' themselves.
These type of people deserve no respect on the road or otherwise.

Yes, the guys who don't respect others rights and rules have no right to be driving on roads !
I speak without prejudice to all automobile owners !

you sound like a total idiot here when you make such sweeping statements .bikes cut off cars more as its easier in a bike , same way i can say car drivers are always overspeeding on highways where max limit is 80 and on some rare stretches 90 . not to mention the fact that 2 wheelers are 10-15 times more in numbers on indian roads so statistically they will commit more offenses .

not everyone can afford a car buddy . another thing i want to point out is majority of the rash bike riders are youngsters . when they get older and mature and have money they buy car and drive better . youngsters in cars also drive rashly who get vehicles due to being richer .

Yes, I know there are a lot more two-wheelers in the country. But does that give bikers the license to cut around and drive like a dick? No, it doesn't.
Does that change the fact, that the are more rash bike drivers as compared to rash car drivers? No.

So who's fault is that?.. In my eyes, it's the bikers. Because he's riding an unsafe vehicle in the first place.
If you can't afford a car, use public transport. If you die riding a bike, it's your fault for riding a bike in the first place. Simple.

its not that simple , public transport can never provide the last mile connectivity , you cant expect evry one to walk kms n kms to their homes or pay exorbitant rates to autos etc . use some brains and logic . and % of bikers being rash drivers compared to % of 4 wheel drivers without taking absolute numbers is your own silly imagination and individual experiences . unless you can back it up with cold hard facts its just your viewpoint nothing else . you are entitled to your view but dont make general statements based on cliches and stereotypes .

Its good you keep reminding us that all this is entirely your personal belief not backed up any fact or logic and conveniently leaves you an easy way out whenever confronted with simple rebuttals ..

Take care & Gud nite.

Pinched a bikers nerve, did I?

Hard facts about rash drivers? What am I? ARAI or something?
Everything we share in a forum, on a topic like this, is our own experience and views. Just like you shared earlier.

A couple of years back, when I was working, because I couldn't afford to drive to work everyday, I use to take a Taxi, Train then Rickshaw to work and back everyday.
I even toyed with the idea of a bike. Then I realised that my love is too precious to me and to my loved ones, to risk life everyday on a death trap.
Hence, I continued with the gruelling public transport system, which turned out to be cheaper than buying and using a bike, FYI.

The fact is, that you know I'm right and you ego doesn't want to let you accept it.

No logic in valuing my life? Okay.

If it's logical to use a bike everyday, putting put your life at risk, then I'm happy that I have no "logic".

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

I will still ask the original question which I had asked. Lets say you are a pro car driver (no road rage and all) and a stupid teenager on a "cheap" bike (death trap) commits a mistake and you car (not you) makes him go down on the road. Would you not look back twice and see to him?

The only 'fact' you are sure of is that you are right.. which doesn't exactly lend you any credibility.

Im guess your bike riding skills aren't up to the mark so you decided to wait for a car.. good move for you I think. Not all have that luxury.

And trying to compare value of life to the need to two wheelers.. well simply shows how out of touch you are with the real world.

I can't say bout your logic but if you rolled down the tinted windows of your car, you'll see that there is whole another world out there.. yes these people do risk their lives every day for their loved ones.

Your so called personal logic and perspective applies only to you so try not to crucify others with it..

Argue all you want, throw in words like ego, love, safety. and your 'facts'.. but i hope you realise that this thing called Reality supercedes all.
